SHARE Michael Jordan releases statement on Stuart Scott

NBA Hall of Famer Michael Jordan joined a chorus of athletes, journalists and fans in remembering longtime ESPN anchor Stuart Scott.

Scott, 49, succumbed to cancer Sunday after a seven-year battle with the disease.

Here’s a statement Jordan released to ESPN, via Darren Rovell:

I’m so sad to hear the news that Stuart has passed away. He was truly a trailblazer in his field, and by refusing to change his style, made himself into a star. I always enjoyed sitting down to talk to him. But to me, he wasn’t just a broadcaster, he was an old friend, who I’d known since college. He fought so hard against cancer and I hoped he’d win the battle. I send my sincerest condolences to his daughters, Taelor and Sydni, and his family and friends. Boo-yah, my brother.

Jordan and Scott were both North Carolina alumni. Jordan left the school in 1984, and Scott graduated in 1987.
